[Screenplay]: Sir Drone

1989.

Price: $3,000.00

Softcover. Stapled photocopied pages of the handwritten manuscript used as a shooting script, and possibly as a continuity script. 37 sheets, printed rectos only. No cover sheet, possibly, or even probably, as issued. Quite worn around the edges, staples pulled through in a few instances, and the first and last leaves in danger of detaching, but a sound good copy. There are a few notes in an unknown hand (possibly Pettibon's) excising or emphasizing scenes, and handwritten numbers in the margins breaking the entire film into separate scenes.

One of Pettibon's first films, one of four written and directed by him in 1989. According to the IMDB summary the film is about "[t]hree teenagers from the industrial part of Los Angeles [who] try to form a punk rock band in Hollywood." The film featured legendary punk and post-punk rock bass guitarist Mike Watt, Destroy All Monster's Mike Kelley, and Pettibon also appeared in the film. Pettibon is a renowned artist and filmmaker. From the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, he was closely associated with the punk rock band Black Flag and the record label SST Records, both founded by his older brother Greg Ginn. Pettibon scripts are rare and ephemeral, probably not intended to have been preserved. Pettibon additionally performed with several bands, including Sür Drone.
